This item is support for, and must be purchased along with, Academic VMware vSphere 6 Essentials Plus Kit for 3 hosts (Max 2 processors per host).

cademic VMware vSphere Essentials Plus Kit is a comprehensive solution for schools and higher education facilities, interested in implementing virtualization of physical servers and decreasing the costs of purchase and maintenance of hardware, at the same time ensuring they obtain the best availability and highest data security. The kit includes 6 CPU vSphere Essentials Plus licenses (for 3 servers and for 2 processors each) and 1 vCenter Server Essentials license, which enables the implementation of a virtual environment for multiple work stations in an education facility.

The Academic VMware vSphere Essentials Plus Kit consists of all applications included in the Essential Kit and additionally:

  • VMware vSphere Storage Appliance for Essentials Plus,
  • VMware Data Protection,
  • VMware High Availability (HA),
  • VMware vMotion,
  • VMware vStorage APIs,
  • VMware vShield Zones,
  • VMware vShield Endpoint,
  • VMware Replication.

Key Features:

VMware vSphere Essentials Kit and Essentials Plus Kit include the following key features and components:

  • VMware ESXi™ hypervisor architecture provides a robust, production-proven, high-performance virtualization layer that enables multiple virtual machines to share hardware resources with performance that can match or exceed native throughput.
  • VMware vCenter Server for Essentials provides centralized management and performance monitoring for all virtual machines and vSphere hosts with built-in physical-to-virtual (P2V) machine conversion and rapid provisioning, using virtual-machine templates.
  • VMware vSphere VMFS enables virtual machines to access shared storage devices (Fibre Channel, iSCSI, etc.) and is a key enabling technology for other components such as VMware vSphere Storage vMotion®.
  • VMware vSphere Thin Provisioning provides dynamic allocation of shared storage capacity, enabling IT organizations to implement a tiered storage strategy while reducing storage spending by up to 50 percent.
  • VMware vSphere vStorage APIs provide integration with supported third-party data protection.
  • VMware vCenter Update Manager™ automates tracking, patching and updating for vSphere hosts and for applications and OSs running in VMware virtual machines.
  • VMware vCenter Converter™ enables IT administrators to rapidly convert physical servers and third-party virtual machines to VMware virtual machines.
  • VMware vCenter Operations Manager Foundation enables you to leverage comprehensive views into health, risk and efficiency scores of your vSphere environment infrastructure. Quickly drill down to see what's causing current workload conditions, pinpoint potential problems in the future and identify areas with inefficient use of resources.
  • Hardware compatibility is possible with the broadest range of 32- and 64-bit servers and OSs, storage and networking equipment and enterprise management tools.

VMware vSphere Essentials Plus Kit includes the following business-continuity features and components for alwaysavailable IT:

  • vSphere High Availability provides cost-effective, automated restart within minutes for all applications in the event of hardware or OS failures.
  • vSphere vMotion enables live migration of virtual machines across servers with no disruption to users or service loss, eliminating the need to schedule application downtime for server maintenance.
  • VMware vSphere Data Protection™ is VMware's backup and replication solution, powered by EMC Avamar. It delivers storage-efficient backups through patented variable-length deduplication, rapid recovery and WAN-optimized replication for DR. Its vSphere-integration and simple user interface makes it an easy and effective backup tool for vSphere. It provides agent-less, image-level VM backups to disk and application-aware protection for business-critical applications (e.g., Exchange, SQL Server) along with WAN-efficient, encrypted backup replication across sites.
  • vShield Endpoint provides agentless antivirus and antimalware protection to secure your virtual machines.
  • vSphere Replication provides low-cost replication for your virtual machine and serves as the foundation for leveraging a cloud-based disaster-recovery solution from a VMware cloud service provider.
